With inspirational case studies and examples from professional and semi-pro female photographers, user-friendly technical explanations and image critiques, this book is a practical and useful toolkit for busy girls who enjoy photography.
Becoming an accomplished and competent photographer needs to be approached in three stages: Understand your camera and learn how to drive it; Composition - tune in and understand your subject; Post production - share and print.
Rather than explain every technical function from the outset, the aim of this book is to demystify the jargon and take you, step by step, back to the basic fundamental principals of photography; first putting you in control of the camera which will, in turn, free up the composition and creativity. The more advanced features of the camera and in-depth processes can be explored once the basic principals are understood.
This is a fun, contemporary photography book that will become your essential tool for taking your passion for photography to the next level.
